A man was pistol-whipped in front of his son during a home invasion early Thursday, Richmond police said.
The resident of Maplehill Drive told police that shortly before 4:30 a.m. a woman rang the doorbell and used the name of a person he knew. When the man opened the door, the woman and three armed men charged inside, according to police.
The intruders took the victim’s 13-year-old son and sat him down, then struck the father in the head with their weapons.
One man had a shotgun, and the other two had pistols, including a .45-caliber automatic pistol. The man with the .45 fired one round into the kitchen wall. The male intruders all wore ski masks, but the woman didn’t. One intruder wore a purple ski mask, and another wore black and red clothes, the victim told police.

The intruders took an undisclosed amount of money from the victim and left. The victim was treated and released from a local hospital.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Sgt. Tim Craft at 859-623-1162.
